Great Staple of California—Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

Great Staple of California—Tobacco. Home Wood Garden, American Flat, ) Sacramento county, Oct. 8, 185r>. ) [concluded.] I made a concoction from ten pounds of first quality prunes, and one pound liquorice, and boiled alternately six gallons of water, using prunes and liquorice in part, as my judgment led me as to quantity required to dampen the layers of stalks I was preparing to sweat. This liquid must be cooled to lukewarm heat. Form a pen ©f ten feet long, and six feet wide, against a wall, then put layers of the plants upon the floor, and sprinkle, " with a corn wisp," sufficient to dampen, and in successive layers, till about four feet high; then cover closely with blankets, on the iqH, ami let it remain for tiOafin to-twenty hour*. —by examining it will be known how the process of sweating has succeeded ; if satisfactory, strip the leaves from the stalk and tie up in bundles or hands, and lay thrm on the floor, after which turn them as often as dampness remains in t...

Results without Reasoning. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

Results without Reasoning. LIME AND PLABTEH. The value of lime or plaster, on land, depends on the component parts of the soil to which it is applied. If there is too much iron, or sulphuric acid in the soil, it wants lime to neutralize the acid, and change it into plaster—on such land, plaster is positively injurious. If land is destitute of iron, or does not possess enough to form the sulphuric acid necessary to decompose the old vegetable matter, then put on plaster —the sulphur in the composition of plaster supplies the defici2ncv —on such land, lime is injurious, as it neutralizes the little acid in the soil, of which there is a deficiency already. The evidence of too much iron in the soil is the appearance of it in oxyde, or rust, on the stones —iron scum on top of water filtered through i it—'the grass or clover standing in detached bunches, with bare ground between them —the roots of clover or herdsgrass standing, in the spring, two or thiee inches out of the ground— tame gr...

A Model Farm—A Challenge. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

A Model Farm —A Challenge. John Singerson and brothers, of Missouri, challenge the farmers of the whole Union to produce a farm to excel theirs in variety of productions, amount of production and extent of surface cultivated. Their farm is located about seven miles south of the city of St. Louis, and has been under cultivation less than ten years. A.II persons who think they can excel Singerson farm, and desire to enter the lists for a ''sweep stake" prize, are required to deposit .SSOO, and the award is to be a service of plate, of the value of the deposit of the competitors after deducting the necessary expenses of the Commissioners making the award, who are to consist of one from each State appointed by the Governor thereof, of such States only, however, as have competitors for the prize. The Commissioners are to visit the farms, and decide the matter in the months of September and October next. How many competitors can the Empire State produce ? What say our farmers of the Mohaw...

The Difficulty of Judging between First-rate Animals. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

The Difficulty of Judging between First-rate Animals. The following, from the Mark Lane Expres*, may be read with profit bytho.se acting as judges at our public Fairs. The recommendation in the last paragraph is equally applicable to our State Societies: Sir: Allow me to offer a few remarks on this subject, as applicable to the approaching meetings of our leading agricultural societies, now clo-e at hand. The difficulties which are often experienced by the most competent judges, in deciding between two really first-rate animals of a first-rate sort, are greater than the majority of people who have never acted in the capacity of judges have any idea of. lam happy to say that at the meetings of the Royal Society, such cases frequently do occur, snd, I hope, always will, and with the wish that what I here assert may tend to assist judges on their laborious duties, I am induced to trouble you with these remarks. I will take an instance of two first-rate shorthorn bulls, neither of them ...

A New Gate. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

A New Gate. An ingenious contrivance, iv the way of agate, has been brought to our notice by Mr. Enos Woodruff, of Elizabethtown, New Jersey, for which he has a obtained letters patent, dated April 3, 1855; and, deeming it a valuable improvement upon all other gates with which we are acquainted, we do not hesitate to make it known through our columns. Several of the» gates have been built and put into operation, so that not a particle of doubt exists as to their practicability and utility. They are operated in this wise : A foot passenger, or person on horseback has but to touch with the hand or handle uf his whip a small lever on the top of the gat*. when it opens from him, and the end thus opened gently passes round a quarter of a circle and stops; he then again touches the lever, when the gate describes another quarter of a circle, and is then closed. The great objection to self-acting gates heretofore has been their liability to lieing readily opened by cattle. In Mr. Woodruff's...

Oct. 10, as follows: Our village was thronged yesterday with people from all parts of the country, who came to visit the Fair of the Agricultural Society, The Chatlcd plaza in front of the Court House, was selected for the place of Exhibition, and here was gathered a fine collection of horses, mules, and horned cattle. The large Durham bull belonging to Lovell & Brother, of Vallejo township, attracted universal attention. This animal is four years old. and received a premium at the recent Exhibition at Sacramento. Several fine stallions were also much admired, particularly Sir Charles, a dark bay. seven years old, belonging to Mr. Seabring. of Bodega ; and a light bay, belonging to Mr. Tate, of Santa Rosa ; the latter took the first premium.

The Granary of the World. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

The Granary of the World. For more than two years, as we have watched the resources of California developing under the fostering hand of scientific Agriculture, and as we have carefully noted how lavishly a bounteous Providence has furnished the moans of Supply to countless thousands in our fertile valleys, our attention has been directed to the peculiar features of our State in her soil and climate, and her capabilities to supply other nations with tho "staff of life." We have always, from the commencement of our advocacy of the cause of Agriculture in California, been steadfast in the belief that California was destined to become ere long " the garden of the world." This firm belief has induced us to labor to the best of our ability to present fiom time to time the vai ious subjects of the most prominent importance to the public. Our business was Agriculture, and in that business we introduced from all pa-ts of the world, trees, seeds, plants and shrubs, with the view of experimen...

The Grain Market. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

The Grain Market. The news by last steamer has caused some sensation in our Grain and Flour markets, and from the condition of Europe there is good reason for it. If our farmers will he so kind as to look over the files of this paper for the past four months they will see that that we suggested fur their guidance was not without good authority. We had data for what we said. We did not wish to raise any undue excitement and draw into our market produce from abroad, to the injury of our own own producers; but our aim was to urge fanners to hold on to their grain themselves. and thus reap the benefit which we knew would accrue to them from this course. Every statement we have made in relation t» the markets, abroad and at home, has proved true and our hard working farmers that have held on to their grain have made a handsome gain by it. The short crops of Grain in England, France and Germany, with the destruction of immense quantities in Russia, all serve to create the large demand for...

Epidemic among Fowls—Query. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

Epidemic among Fowls —Query. 0 Stockton, Oct. ISrh, 1855. Editors Farmer: Presuming your columns are open to such a note as this, I wish to know of your subscribers, skilled in such matters, or of you, the causes and tbe remedy —if any is known —for the prevailing epidemic among the domestic fowls. I could discover no visible cause, either internally or externally. The cause I don't know, but the effect is near this: They become suddenly in-sensible and apparently blind ; droop their heads down (not their wings —different disease altogether) and linger from five to twentyI four hours and then die. We had fourteen to die. or rather take sick in one hour, on yesterday, which are all now dead, and prospect for more to share the same fate. The fowls of several immediate neighbors are in the same plight. If you or any of your subscribers could give cause or remedy, you would greatly oblige, Yours, &c. Colfo.v. Note.—We call the attention of our correspondent Colfon, to the ad...

Physical Education. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

Physical Education. One of the most cheering signs of the times which we notice relative to health, is the earnest attention which is now being paid to the physical education of children and youth. In nearly all our schools some regard is paid to an active exercise of the pupils, and in our high schools and seminaries regular systems are being adopted— and in some of these there are interesting gymnastic performances as among the regular duties of the school—and this is now being particularly introduced into our Female Seminaries. This is as it should be. How many lives hive been lost, and how much happiness sacrificed, by the old notions that a girl must never run, skip, jump or dance in the open air, or before folks. How much of mind, intellect and heart has been lost to the world, by reason of a want of the free and full exercise of tue body. What can be expected of a being that is bound down, cribbed and confined to study, and never permitted to look off their books, to smile or...

Highly Important News. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

Highly Important News. SEBASTOPOL TAKEN — IMMENSE LOSS OF LIFE. By the arrival of the Sonera at San Francisco, on Monday evening, we have news in the highest degree important. Sebastopol having at length fallen. The French attacked the MalakofT and the Careening Bay, and the English the Redan. Six repulses were sustained by the French before the MalakofT, but on tho seventh they carried the work in splendid style, and hoisted their eagles on the MalakofT. The slaughter was terrible, and is estimated at 2 000 English. 15.000 French, and as many Russians, making the aggregate of upwards of 30.000 men. Five French generals are reported to have been killed, including Gen. Bosquet. During the night succeeding the assault, the Russians evacuated the entire south side, first blowing up the defences, sinking all the ships, tir ing tho town, and leaving nothing but smouldering ruins. A large allied force was marching along the coast to interrupt the retreat of the Russians inland. The allies...

Letters from the Coast Range.—No. 4. Gktseiu, tap- 12, 1855. [COKC-UDED.) As I descended into the ravine from the upper part of the hill, I ateppcd out to the brow of an abutment of apparently unstable rock and earth which juts into the apex of the ravine, and which afforded a commanding view of the roaring and steaming abyss below, and beyond, and on the right side of me. It would be difficult to describe my impressions, as they were so deep, strange, and complicated. 1 had never seen anything lik 0 it in my life, and I stood silent aud transfixed with amazement and interest, till disturbed by the bawlings of my companions to come down from that perilous and overhanging promontory that seemed ready to slide at any moment. So I descended and commenced a detailed examination of the stupendous wonder itself, and endeavered to collect facts enough to unravel the mysteries of its demonstrations. It would be impossible to tell the numerous magnificent outlets from which steam and gases o...

Our Literary Department. [Newspaper Article] — California Farmer and Journal of Useful Sciences — 2 November 1855

Our Literary Department. Boston, Sept. 18, 1835. [concluded.] •'The Inns and Outs or Paris," or Paris by day and night, by Julie de Margneritte. Published by Wm. White Smith, Philadelphia: There has never been a volume published, which has elicited such unbounded praise, in London and Paris, as well as from all parts of the United States, and although the fascinating work has been issued but a few weeks, the first edition is entirely exhausted, and another in demand. Persons of eminent literary talent havo been extravagant in its praise, and no one can read it without pronouncing it the most delightful volume of the season. It is a daguerreotype of the Parisian World, describing its palaces, churches, theatres, people, drives, promenades, and all objects of interest, interspersed with the historical events and thrilling scenes which were enacted in France. Some of the chapters of this work appeared m a New York journal of a high character, from thence they were copied into several E...
